The gemstone's name comes from the Greek amethustos, meaning not intoxicated, a reference to the ancient belief that the stone could ward off drunkenness. The ancient Greeks and Romans wore amethysts and made drinking vessels of them for this reason.

Honey, I'll be hanging out with the boys at the bar. Oh, and don't worry, I'm drinking out of amethyst.

I have always loved amethyst in its rough, crystallized state. I was once at a fair, which also had art and craft displays, in which unpolished crystals and stones were made into jewelry. They were all very lovely to look at.

THE SPECIFIC FENG SHUI PROPERTIES of AMETHYST?

In feng shui, the amethyst is used for its purification qualities, as well as its ability to connect to higher planes of energy. It can be used to calm the emotions in a household where there are excessive arguments and misunderstandings. It can also help with study and learning.

WHERE DO I PLACE THE AMETHYST FOR GOOD FENG SHUI?

It is an excellent feng shui cure for the following bagua areas: Northeast (Spiritual Growth and Self-Cultivation, Southeast (Wealth and Abundance), as well as South (Light Within/Fame & Reputation). You can also place a small amethyst cluster in your child study or in the living room. If you are going thru an intensely emotional time in your life, you can wear the cooling amethyst in your pocket (a small polished tumbled rock), as well as have a couple in your car.

If they didn't want to be drunk, they could just not drink.

Make every post as if it was the first one in the thread.
